IN THE FALL OF 2000, Brandon Randall '04 was just one of about 300 other freshmen; like them, he was anxious about the college years ahead and eager to move forward with a career after earning his degree. In fact, the ease of making and building close relationships in this academic community acted as a catalyst to boost his self-confidence.
"I always felt comfortable about approaching another student or a faculty member," he says. "As a physics student, I had many of the same seven or eight guys in every class. We worked as a team and learned together."
Now a supervisor with Anheuser-Busch, Brandon is putting to the test many of the organizational, writing, and interpersonal skills he acquired at Hampden-Sydney College. He majored in physics, not in business or economics, but he is succeeding in one of the country's largest corporations with many diverse operations.
